Make a Wish


I'm back! Seems like I have been gone a month of Sunday's!!! What happened was my Brother In Law past away Sunday. He was 64 and had been married to Bill's sister for 44 years. Needless to say it was a shocker. So I was there instead of here stamping. Yesterday Bill and I did ride down to Charlotte to the CKC, I was there about 1 1/2 hours was all. Just long enough to walk through and pick up a few things then back home. Today, it's been clean, clean and do laundry trying to catch all those fun chores up LOL. Did take time to get a little inky. This is Stampin Up card stock, a Martha Stewart Lattice punch, Spellbinders Fancy Labels, Heartfelt Leafy Swirls, Daisy patch Flowers and the Daisy Dies. I also added pearls in the center of the flowers and around the labels. Seems like it needs something but couldn't think of what so I just gave up. I left to much white showing and was afraid I would really mess it up if I tried adding more swirls. So it is what it is. That's it for now, gotta get the sheets out of the drier and wash some more, duty calls LOL. Thanks for dropping by and have a good one!

Sorry to hear about your brother-in-law. Its so hard when your SIL has had a companion for sooo many years. Really like your card nothing needs to be changed. I do have a suggestion though. I did a similar card where I asked a friend why doesn't it look done? She said that because the flowers look like they're outlined with a darker color and the leaves look like that too but the tag doesn't... it looks unfinished. I added just a touch of color around the edges of the card, tag, and main white image and I mean just barely sponged and what a difference it makes. Of course other times I just go away for a while, get into a better mood and voila the card is gorgeous! lol.

So sorry to hear of your brother in law's passing, Olga. How sad. I'm glad that you and Bill were able to be there. As for your card - it's lovely! I like it just as it is, but if you are intent on doing something else to it, I like Dawn's idea. It would help pull the eye down from the flowers. Again, I think it's beautiful as is!!! Love how you used two of the nesties for your sentiment! Great idea!

Sorry for you and your family's loss. I did miss you, wondered what was up. I liked this card right off. The vines and the pearl additions are my fav part. I suppose you could have used more vines, but you don't 'need' more vines. :-)
